Like many large European cities Prague has its share of immigrants who have found their way to this wonderful city and have shared the cuisines of their native homelands with visitors from around the world.
But we are in Prague . Time to eat something from a Czech restaurant . From roasted rabbit , beef goulash , potato dumplings and other local favorites . I for one adventured a little more upon getting an eyeful of what pigs knuckle looked like .
I suppose being from America the word pig is always replaced with pork for the most part. As we also don’t say cow. So think pork knuckle . Although knuckle may not sound appetizing to you either. Don’t think of the name , just have a look . A massive piece of meat on the bone that has been roasted to perfection . Nothing like a pork chop that I have ever had. Absolutely moist with flavor and nearly coming off the bone . Dipped into either a blended mustard or horseradish sauce . Served with a skewer of fresh vegetables . This feels like eating in mid evil times . Only you are royalty .
I am no foodie by any means . I am happy eating lunch from street vendors and dinner off menus that have pictures . In short I don’t write about food, ever. So there is a reason I am straying from the normal ramblings of travel that I post here. This , when in The Czech Republic is a meal you cannot miss out on . Also served as pig shoulder too. Either way I believe any one will be pleasantly surprised by this tribute to Czech cuisine.
As far as Czech desserts go, I don’t know . I walked down the street and got a waffle cone with two scoops of cookie gelato .
